Blockchain technology continues to redefine not only how the exchange sector operates, but the global financial economy as a whole. Blockchain technology has the ability to optimize the global infrastructure to deal with global issues in this space much more efficiently than current systems. The concept of blockchain has energized the financial services industry globally. The concept has already brought a disruption in the financial industry.

What are blockchain use cases and initiatives taken by financial services industry?

Imagine being able to move assets across borders and between institutions without paying huge transfer fees. By removing barriers, such as intermediary banks, prohibitive costs, interminable waiting periods, and regulatory restrictions, service providers connecting with the blockchain technology can open up financial systems to entire countries

The interest of financial institutions on blockchain is quite evident. Blockchain technology allows everyone to hold and make transactions as strangers but in a completely transparent manner. There is no mediator in between two people making the transaction, and the entire process becomes easier and cheaper. This concept can be applied to the entire digital world, making any kind of exchange/transactions secure.
